Then she appeared

Then she appeared, apple venus on a half open shell
Then she appeared, the first photograph on Fox Talbots gel
I was a little frightened
Flying with my senses heightened
Cherubim cheered
Then she appeared

Draco Malfoy walked through the empty corridors of Hogwarts school of Witchcraft and Wizardry a frown planted on his face and his blonde hair covering his grey/blue eyes. He sat down under the tree near the lake, rain poured down from the sky and soaked him through but he didn’t care. Draco liked the rain, he loved dancing in the rain with her.

It was winter time and it was raining. I walked down the empty corridors after having another argument with Professor Snape, I searched the grounds and saw a mass of brown hair; I knew it had to be Hermione.

I walked over to her rain soaking my uniform, but it didn’t matter, it was her that he was concerned about.

Hermione looked around as she heard footsteps approaching and angrily got up and began to walk away.

“Hermione …”
“What Malfoy come to embarrass me again? Or have you come to tell me that I’m a stupid mudblood? Or that you like me and that was the reason you kissed me in front of the whole school? You have confused me so much and you don’t even care, Ginny, Ron and Harry is all mad at me because they think that I betrayed them. But you don’t care about how many people you hurt do you, Malfoy?”

Tears were streaming down Hermione’s face she had know idea that this would be the moment that would change her life dramatically.

I pulled her towards me and looked her in the eye.

“Hermione Jane Granger, the reason I kissed you just then in front of everyone was because I have loved you since our first year, I don’t know today just seemed right. I know that you probably don’t feel the same way. I’m so sorry that I have caused you so much hurt and my dad will probably kill me for loving a muggle-born but I don’t care, what he thinks anymore. Please forgive me Hermione and if you don’t feel the same then I will leave you alone.”

Tears were now springing from my eyes as I gazed into hers.

“I Love you too, MalDraco.”
Their lips once again found there way onto each others and the stood in the rain kissing for what seemed like an eternity.

“Dance with me?”

Hermione put one hand on his shoulder and the other in my hand, I put my other hand around her waist and we danced.

I looked up at the castle and saw the headmaster watching on from the window, he grinned and even though he was far away I could see his eyes twinkling.


Then she appeared, as the giggling crew of Marie Celeste
Then she appeared, pale Atlantis rising out of the west
I was a little dazzled
Catherine wheeled and senses frazzled
Know it sounds weird
Then she appeared

Draco thought about his life and how it had become like this was it because he had been asked to kill Dumbledore in his sixth year and then had to flee from the Dark Lord because he didn’t have enough courage to do it and let Snape do it for him? Was it because he had believed what his father believed in? Or was it his love of her that changed his whole personality well who he thought he was anyway.

And the sun which formally shone
In the clearest summer sky
Suddenly just changed address
Now shines from her blue eyes

He turned his head and watched her run to him, rain pouring down upon them. Draco pulled her body close to him they were both soaking wet but neither shivered in the coldness.
“Draco what are you doing back here? You left without a word for a whole year and now your back here, what excuse do you have?”
“Hermione I… Love you.”
Hermione gasped in utter shock and disbelief “Why did you leave me then, I could have helped you?”
“I was scared Hermione.”

Hermione began to walk away as Draco yelled to her “Please don’t leave me I need you Hermione, please.”

Draco had tears streaming down his cheeks as did Hermione who continued walking away, but Draco caught up to her.

He grabbed her by the arm and spun her around to face him.

Then she appeared, brittle shooting star that dropped in my lap
Then she appeared, dressed in tricolour and phrygian cap
I was a little troubled
Hookah with my senses bubbled
All Edward leared
Then she appeared

“Dance with me?”
“Draco no you don’t deserve a thing.”
“Draco I am dating someone else.”
“What? Who?”
“That’s none of your……..”
But Hermione got cut off as she heard Ron calling her name.
“Quick Draco you have to go.”
“You’re dating Weasley, how could you Hermione?”
“Draco you left.”

Ron came over to the pair and shoved Draco against the wall. “What are you doing back here you DEATH EATER!”
The words shattered Draco into a million pieces.
“Ron he is not a death eater.”
“How do you know Hermione?”
“He told me and if he was why would he runaway from the Dark Lord.”
“Because he is a coward.”
“He is not a coward Ronald.”
“Why are you sticking up for him Hermione.”
“Because I….love him Ron.”
“What about me?”
“I am sorry, I really wanted to love you Ron but Draco has stole my heart and there is nothing I can do to get it back.”

Ron walked off and Hermione and Draco kissed outside in the rain.


I walked away from the girl I loved knowing that she loved another; it broke my heart. I had felt so strongly for Hermione I was sure she felt the same way after Malfoy left, we had gotten together.

I walked back up to the Gryffindor tower and ran into Harry.

“Did you ask her?”
“Ask her what?”
“Too marry you, silly?”
“Why not Ron, you had planned the whole thing out, you had the room of requirement set up with a table for just the two of you and Dobby was going to make your dinner. You was going to slip the engagement ring in a book and ask her to marry you.”
“Yeah well I didn’t know Malfoy would come back.”

Harry looked out the window and he could see out on the grounds was Hermione with Draco.

Harry looked sympathetic towards me, he had known for along time how I had felt for her and how much I had been looking forward to tonight.

I walked up to my room and climbed into my four-poster bed the book with the engagement ring, I had saved up to get lay forgotten on my bedside table and I let my self lay back onto the pillow and cry, hard and long I don’t know how long I stayed there for, but it felt like a lifetime.

I had always lost out to the Malfoy’s!


Hermione pulled out her wand and got rid of the blood running down Draco’s face from where Ron had punched him.

“Yes what Hermione?”
“I will dance with you.”

Draco held Hermione tightly and they dance to the invisible music. Both were totally in love with each other and knew that they were meant to be.

And the moon which formally shone
On the marbled midnight mile
Suddenly just packed its bags
Now shines from her bright smile
Then she appeared
Out of nowhere
